Raunds Skip Hire FAQs

What happens to the waste?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do you deliver skips across Northamptonshire?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Raunds, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Northamptonshire. Through a network of regional and national skip businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Raunds, Kettering or Irthlingborough, we have got you covered.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for larger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Raunds firms which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered items like washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

Will my skip have a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are hiring a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish that may result from garden work, construction work and home clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we pick up in skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, cupboards, sinks, and various other household products.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electrical objects (tumble dryers, televisions or washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

It is always best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Raunds?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

If you manage a business in Raunds and wish to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips available.

As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Can I fill up the skip above the level load mark?

It is important never to overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it is very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you may be required to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a UK-wide skip service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How big is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

What is classed as being a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as long as two weeks from your delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and we will organise the collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over busy periods.

How much does skip hire in Raunds cost?
